Mr. Willie Melvin Finch Jr, affectionately known as “Teddy” by family and friends, was born September 4, 1959 in Newport News, Virginia to the late Willie Melvin Finch Sr. and Eunice Alston Finch.

He worked as a sous chef at Red Lobster in Stone Mountain, GA. Upon returning to Virginia in 2009, Willie worked as a Sales Associate at Casey Chevrolet until his health declined.

He attended Cornerstone Worship Center International where he worshipped under the leadership of Dr. Gerard Ruff. He faithfully transported his mother, the late Eunice Finch to church every Sunday. After her passing, he attended Pray First Mission Ministries under the leadership of Pastor Lathaniel Kirts where he served as the drummer.
